In collaboration with experts from the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, the University of Washington, and the national immunization programs of Uganda, Kenya, and Malawi, PATH developed the Cold Chain Equipment Manager (CCEM)—an inventory and planning tool that utilizes Microsoft Access–based software and analytic tools to help with data collection and analysis. Planning algorithms, data visualization, system modeling, and report-generation by CCEM adhere to national immunization policies and WHO/UNICEF standards. This poster, first presented in March 2012 at the Fifth Annual International Conference on Information Communication Technologies and Development, outlines the role and potential positive impact of the CCEM in lead up to the introduction of new pneumococcal and rotavirus vaccines.
